Vatnsdalsvatn is the 3rd largest lake on Vágar. Situated in a valley above the village Bøur, it is relatively easy to get to, although the climb up is steep. The hike would start by the stream "Breiðá" halfway between Bøur and Sørvágur. It would take roughly an hour to hike up to the lake.

“Trælanípa (Slave Cliff) is a perpendicular rock wall, which juts 142 metres upwards out of the sea. Supposedly, it has gotten its name from the Viking Age when slaves were pushed off the mountain. Be careful not to get too close to the edge as it is steep! From here, you can see the southernmost part of Streymoy, Hestur, Koltur, Sandoy, Skúvoy and Suðuroy.”
“Fjallavatn is the 2nd largest lake on Vágar as well as on the whole of the Faroe Islands. The area between the lake and the north coast is called “Norð á Munna,” and is a popular hike for locals in the summer; especially on the longest day of the year, where it is possible to watch both sunset and sunrise within a short period of time. Occationally large whales, including orcas and sperm whales, can be seen in the bay below. Although it is a long hike Norð á Munna, it is relatively easy: the path from the end of the road in Vatnsoyrar is almost completely flat. Though, it does require you to cross a river, so appropriate footwear is essential. This hike would take 4-5 hours. It is possible to hike on both sides of the lake, however, the path on the right side of the lake is more popular. Fjallavatn has been a nature conservation area since 1983.”
“Trøllkonufingur is a 313 m tall monolith on the south-east side of Sandavágur. Only 11 people are known to have reached the top of Trøllkonufingur. Legend has it, that Trøllkonufingur is the finger of a witch that came to throw the Faroe Islands to Iceland. When she came to the sea south of Vágar, the sun came up and she was turned into stone and fell into the ocean. ”
